A charming wood cabin in the up-and-coming Oldest North neighbourhood.
If you’ve been looking for the perfect chance to get on the property ladder, look no further than this fine opportunity located on some of the most sought-after real estate on the planet. Not only is this 2,500-square-foot, three-bed, two-bath wood cabin a piece of world architectural history, but with 25 acres, modern creature comforts and more privacy than you’ll know what to do with, this is a fantastic opportunity to diversify your real estate portfolio.
Constructed in the 1800s and recently upgraded with new appliances, this property has stood the test of time for a reason. Ancient timbers combined with the exquisite woodworking skills of the on-site workforce come together to create a warm, inviting home has been home to two reliable long-term tenants and their stable of reindeer for 200 years. The kitchen features a built-in gas range, matching wood cabinets, an oven with 12 remarkable cookie settings, a new stainless fridge and a keg system (currently serving eggnog and hot cocoa) and leads directly to a living room centred around the iconic wood-burning fireplace, with mounting hardware for stockings already installed.
The built-in home office looks out on the serene Taiga Forest, where snow-capped evergreen trees play home to a world of woodland creatures, and features a woodworking bench, adorned with multiple historic world maps and includes access to a complete global behaviour database.
Here, it’s Christmas year-round: The halls are permanently decked, the chestnuts always roasting and the mistletoe always hung. The property’s three bedrooms are decorated with beautiful seasonal decor and plenty of closet space, and the house is filled with the sounds of faint carolling that grows inexplicably (and, as yet unexplainably) louder as the holiday season approaches.
And don’t overlook the on-site work camp, home to the Elf workforce who also contribute to a sizeable income stream for the property owner. Multiple small dwellings, which are managed and decorated by the elves who live in them (maintenance is the owner’s responsibility, a concession won by the union in the Christmas Labour Crisis of 1879). There is year-round access to the property with the use of magic reindeer, though roads, easements and driveways are not maintained due to jurisdictional disputes that are ongoing. Analysts predict that given the current climate this could be rezoned as a waterfront property by the year 2120.
